Women’s College scholarships
Each year Women’s College offers a number of scholarships for new and continuing students. New students should complete the application form available on the College’s scholarships page.
Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience, in which you encounter the world and yourself, and meet incredible people who will remain your dearest friends and colleagues, all while receiving an education in a world-class university. There are several kids of scholarships available to support post-graduate study, internationally and within Australia. The below is an indicative list only and not comprehensive.
Remember, only 23 people applied for the Rhodes in 2013. Many people who are eligible for these scholarships don’t apply because they make assumptions about what committees are looking for and their own abilities. If you are even remotely interested in applying for any of these please contact the Senior Teaching Fellow, Dr Tamson Pietsch.
